Quite a grand title for what will be my first ever blog post type thing (see; I’ve nailed the technical terms already), isnt it?

So, why am I here? Why do I want to put my personal thoughts, views and bits of my life on display to anyone who chooses to read it? Chances are if you have stumbled across this then you will in some way understand the catharsis involved in putting pen to paper, fingers to keys or all that is inbetween and simply letting go ( if not, you should try it!).

The simple fact is my life is OK; I have a roof over my head, a car, a job, 2 wonderful children and enough of a social life to keep me going. There is however the ubiquitous “but”… I seem to be either unlucky or make horrible choices because at the moment EVERYTHING is a struggle. Now I can already hear the amature (and possibly even professional) psychologists among you forming conclusions, but when I say struggle I dont mean I find it hard to get out of bed of a day, or that I sit crying in the toilet at work. Rather, many of the trails that we all face; money worries, job satisfaction, home improvement woes and so on are big features in my life, and are beginning to control it.

So, beyond ranting about it to my own mind, I thought I would do 2 things: 1- Fix it (duh!) and 2- Share my journey.

On the former, I have no idea how I am going to go about this… this is what got me here in the first place I fear, I need to apply an analytical approach to decide what is going wrong and go from there. On the latter, I am not really sure how I am going to share it either. I will write every few days, some may be me simply ranting, some may be helpful information I’ve found and yet others I hope will be positive steps towards creating the life I really want.

I hope you’ll come along…
